Tony Khan On Death Threats & Online Criticisms, Tony Schiavone Remembers Curt Hennig



On a recent edition of “The Dan Le Batard Show,” AEW President Tony Khan shared his thoughts on the harsh criticism he receives from fans online, and if he ever expected to receive death threats.

Khan said, “I think it’s great. To be honest, the rancor of sports fans is across all sports, and it’s something I’ve seen in football, in the NFL, you see it in football in the [English] Premier League. For us, it’s a great thing that we have passionate fans that really care about AEW, that really get excited about the shows. I love it. And our fans are really supportive.”

On a recent edition of his “What Happened When” podcast, AEW broadcaster Tony Schiavone reflected on the late “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig signing with WCW in 1997.

Schiavone said, “There was a lot of chatter of how big a star he was and how he would be so good for this company. It was pretty much … I don’t know with the boys as much, but I think with … people of us in the front office who followed wrestling, we were pretty excited about him coming over. He was a major star, we thought, and would really help us out a great deal. So we all thought that it be a big win for us.”
